Congreso-JD (S) internal feud responsible for the crisis in Karnataka: BJP
NEW DELHI: Rejecting the statement by Congress that it was trying to overthrow the government, the BJP said on Saturday that the dispute between the ruling allies, Congress and JD (S) is behind the new political instability in the state.
The BJP media chief and Deputy Anil Baluni claimed that his party had no role in the avalanche of resignations by the governing alliance of the MLA in Karnataka, which has raised doubts about the survival of the government led by H D Kumaraswamy.
The reality is that there is a battle for political supremacy within Congress, as well as between this and the JD (S). He does not want the Kumaraswamy government to continue. This ugly internal policy is behind the instability, he said.
The leader of the Congress, Siddaramaiah, was the prime minister of the state before Kumaraswamy.
While Congress and JD (S) fought each other in the 2018 assembly elections, they joined to form the government after the BJP emerged as the largest party.
After 13 MLA of the governing alliance submitted their resignations to the assembly president on Saturday, Congress accused the BJP of trying to topple the government by buying the MLA.
The new word for 'aaya ram gaya ram' is MODI: maliciously orchestrated defections in India. The government of Karnataka, which is a joint government with a complete majority under our democratic structure, is now being sought to be brought down by desertions and resignations. The main speaker of the Congress told reporters.
While investigating in Surjewala, Baluni said the leader of Congress does not have much idea about his constituency in Haryana, not to mention Karnataka or the country.
The Congress and the JD (S) are trying to finish each other. What is clear is that the people of the state have seen the corrupt face of the alliance government, he said.
Karnataka, head of BJP, B S Yeddyurappa, also claimed that his party had nothing to do with the resignations.
We will see what will happen in the future (...) we will make the right decision at the right time. The prevailing confused situation has hampered the development of the state. I'm watching.
Based on the decision the speaker will make, we will think about new measures, he added.
When asked if the BJP would make any move to claim the government's participation before the Governor, Yeddyurappa said: We will not do those things. We will wait and observe the developments that are being developed.
